    Neither, they don't sound right.

    I agree with @bellebaby221

  • Thank you for the honest opinion! We like Allie as a stand alone name , we might just change the middle name then ;/ 
  • I agree with Allison Lainey. Having two names ending in "-ie"/"-ey" is too rhymey. I'd go with a name that doesn't end in the same sound, either first or middle. Nicknames as names are also nms though.

  • I agree with using Allison nn Allie
  • Although I agree about the flow, I like Amy as it's underused in this generation.
  • Allie Lainey to me doesn't sound too bad but I do like the flow of Allison Lainey better.
  • Yeah, I'd go with Allison Lainey or Amelia Lainey and Allie/Amy could be the nicknames. I prefer Allison slightly.

  • I don’t like the flow of either and I wouldn’t do Allie as a full name. Allison is better but I prefer Amy for the first name. It’s refreshing and cute to me. Amy Layne maybe.
  • Thanks everyone! 💕 that helps a lot
  • Amy as it is a complete name
